Having heard great things about this place from several different sources I was really really excited to get a reservation here for our last night. Having never been to Italy before and having heard so much about the food, I was generally disappointed by the food in Venice. So on reading the reviews of this place, I was set for... More

I had asked our hotel to recommend somewhere for dinner & they sent us a list of 5 places to choose from, I chose this one because it didn't look touristy. I've been to Venice 4 times now & am sick of the eateries that cater to tourists. This place gets full of locals. We went on a Saturday evening,... More

We went to this place following recommendations from our hotel and our travel book (Top 10 of Venice). The starter a simple pasta with truffle shavings was simple but nice, our mains - duck and lamb were very plain and overcooked with minimal sides. I don't want to insult the chef but I'd suspect most people would do a much... More

Adorable little place off the mainpath and the tourist feels. The food was always exceptional, service was on and off, but overall it doesn't really affect the feelings.

We arrived after 9:00 pm and some nice places had just come free. However, we were put down at a bad table in a corner between the kitchen and the entrance, with an excuse that the fun tables were reserved. They stayed rest of the evening simply empty. So that was the first lie. We asked two glasses of white... More

After Fiore, Gigio is the best restaurant in town, no questions about this. I have been eating here over a hundred of times in the last 15 years and never it was less then perfect. It is not cheap but for the same quality (if there was) you'd pay twice as much in Venice. Don't waste your time looking at... More

Both food and service were exemplary at this neighborhood restaurant. We received high levels of food and service even though the staff realized we were tourists and were unlikely to be returning. Location was easily accessible, yet not in the center of the common tourist areas.
